Flight Facilities – Crave You (Aeroplane vs Friendly Fires vs Giselle edit)

Fresh from their inclusion on Kitsune Maison Compilation 10: The Fireworks Issue, Aussie duo Flight Facilities embark on a whistle-stop European tour in Denmark, Sweden, England, Portugal, Georgia, Spain, Bulgaria, Switzerland and Italy.

Building on that inclusion they have dropped a new reworked mash-up of their track ‘Crave You (Feat. Giselle)’. It sees Friendly Fires & Aeroplane being added to the mix to create wonderfully upbeat electro-pop, who’s head nodding cheeriness knows no bounds. Also check the equally great c90s remix too, all seven and a half minutes of it.

Both of these have been getting repeat treatment around these parts, you can too if you grab ’em below.

The Brothers of Chico Dusty (Big Boi vs. The Black Keys)

Who doesn’t love a good mash-up record?

Over Christmas the little known DJ Wick-It the Instigator (aka Andrew Owsley) introduced us to The Brothers of Chico Dusty. The project pits together tracks from the Black Keys’ Brothers album and Big Boi’s Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty.

The end results are really quite impressive, feels remarkably organic with nothing sounding out of place. Let this be DJ Wick-It’s formal introduction.

You can grab it for FREE from SoundCloud. Here’s two fine reasons to below!

Download New Girl Talk Album for Free

For the past 24 hours I’ve been sinking my teeth into the Girl Talk’s latest album All Day, hence the delay.

Girl Talk (Aka Gregg Gillis) announced yesterday via Twitter that his new album and follow up to 2008 mash-up master class Feed The Animals, had been released for free.

Guess what? It features absolutely tones of mashed-up samples as you’d expect, it’s excellent so I’d strongly advise you to get it now! All Day is available to download for free right here courtesy of his label, Illegal Art.

Fancy streaming if before you download? You can do it after the jump.

Max Tannone – ‘Dub Kweli’

Max Tannone the brains behind Jaydiohead and Mos Dub is back, previously he’d mashed Jay-Z over Radiohead and Mos Def over old school reggae and dub cuts. The New York mix specialist has returned with Dub Kweli, yeah you guessed it, this time he’s turned his attention to the other half of Blackstar, mashing Talib Kweli with classic dub and reggae tracks.

This fusion of Kweli’s rhythmic delivery of intelligent, insightful and political lyrics with the old school Jamaican reggae and dub vibes feels honest and fresh, with Tannone’s eye for mixing and timing  coming to the fore. The end result isn’t too dissimilar to Mos Dub, excellent feel good vibes and rhythms that you can nod your head to, a must have for fans of hip-hop, reggae and mash-ups, and, oh did I mention it’s free?

Here’s three very good reasons to grab the entire album from his website

Happy Bootleg Friday Time

Old School Bootlegging: Prohibition such a waste

Old School Bootlegging: Prohibition such a waste

I’m off to Oxegen for the weekend so won’t be posting anything until Monday I’d imagine but here’s two super bootlegs that’ve been distracting me all week. Hopefully they keep you going while I’m gone, I’m nice like that.

Don Diablo vs The White Stripes – Seven Nation Daddy

First up is a super mash up by Dutch Dj Don Diablo of his new single ‘Who’s Your Daddy’ and The White Stripes ‘Seven Nation Army’. I’m hoping to get a good listen to his forthcoming debut album ‘Exit Studio Sweatshop’ soon.

Jay-Z vs Focus – Pray (Hocus Pocus) [Trafik’s Brave Bootleg]

This super mashup of Jay-Z’s ‘Pray’ and Focus’ ‘Hocus Pocus’ from Trafik was dropped into my inbox this week. It’s a brilliant bootleg  which further compounds the theory ‘I love Jay-Z bootlegs’, weird that.  Trafik released their album None But The Brave on Global Underground last month.

See yiz all Monday(ish)!
